Noticeboard

Update 29.11.21

Dear Patients, 

Due to unprecedented staff shortages, we are extremely busy at the moment and you may therefore have to wait longer than we would like for routine consultations. 

Please bear with us during busy times and help our staff by considering other options on offer such as the Community Pharmacy consultation Service. 

Please treat our staff with consideration and respect during this difficult time. 

Thank you

Friarwood Surgery Partners. 

Patient Guide to Services

It’s Your Practice: A patient guide to GP services has been put together by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) for patients. 

This guide has been produced as part of the RCGP’s aim to build stronger relationships between you and your doctors and encourage the involvement and inclusion of you in your own care.

The guide provides helpful information on all aspects of using GP services: from finding and choosing a practice and how to get the most out of a GP consultation to accessing health records and understanding patients’ rights and responsibilities.

Apple and StethoscopeIt is split into several sections including:

  • General Practice explained
  • Choosing the right practice for you
  • Registering with a GP practice
  • Seeing your GP – consultations
  • Seeing your GP – the next steps
  • After your GP consultation
  • Your health record
  • Your rights and responsibilities as a patient
  • Get involved with your practice


The publication is part of a push by the NHS as a whole to encourage you to understand how you can get the most out of primary care – which also includes how you can become more involved in monitoring your own health.
